funny girl

We follow Fanny Brice from teenage chorus girl wannabe in pre-depression Vaudeville to the top of the 1930′s show biz heap, the Ziegfeld Follies. A mother’s love shepherds the ugly duckling girl prodigy past the jeers and digs of the neighborhood coffee klatch to give young Fanny the drive and chutzpah to elbow her way into the theatre and onto the stage. Omar Sharif plays her worldly gambler husband, Nicky Arnstein. Sometimes charming, sometimes schlocky musical numbers, the kind you’ll have stuck in your head for days! A young, young Barbara Streisand is fun to watch. [usa, 1968 ] ~ reviewed by nancy brown
